Abstract: In April 2016 it was reported that the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) decided not to invest in the development of the Imphal Jiribam and Imphal-Kohima highways (which link Manipur to Assam and Nagaland respectively) due to a law and order situation. The JICA was originally supposed to invest approx. 740$ million in the project but ultimately stalled it due to the increase in frequency of attacks across the conflict affected borderland areas of the North East (India). The nature of these attacks includes destruction of construction and property, abduction of laborers, contractors and the destruction of machinery. It’s important to study the economic impact of such incidents have in the long run, which is usually difficult to measure and goes well beyond the immediate loss in monetary terms. It is much more difficult to quantify the overall losses of future benefits that would have accrued if the highways were expanded and substantively improved.
